Google Play announces Change the Game Design Challenge

$10,000 college scholarship up for grabs in design contest

Google Play has today announced the Change the Game Design Challenge in an effort to encourage teenagers to get into games development.

Working in partnership with Girls Make Games and the ESA Foundation, the Change The Game Design Challenge is giving teens a chance to win a $10,000 college scholarship, plus $15,000 for their school or community centre technology program.

The design challenge follows on from the Change the Game initiative which Google Play launched last year in a bid to "empower the next generation of female gamemakers".

In June, five finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to attend E3 and showcase their design.

"The finalists will join a celebration of women in gaming, get a VIP tour of Google Los Angeles with female leaders in industry, a scholarship to attend Girls Make Games Summer Camp and more," said Jackie Lau, product marketing manager at Google Play.

The contest is open to US residents only. You can find out more information - including submission guidelines and how to enter - by visiting Change the Game.
